    I ordered 3 blue cochin bantams from Ideal, to go with the ones I had in the 'bator that I had purchased from eBay. Out of 6 eggs set in the 'bator, 2 hatched.

    These are the two I hatched. I am pretty sure I have a pair, a cockerel and pullet. I think these two are sooo pretty!!


    Photobucket is now being a pain, so I am going to post the pics I have loaded, and I will get the rest up in a little while.

    Here is a group shot of the two I hatched with two of the three from Ideal. Respectively, from left to right, I think I have a roo, hen, not sure, and a roo.

    The two on the left are the ones I hatched myself.


    Close up of the one I am pretty sure is a she...

    So what do ya'll think? Am I right so far?

    Oh and they were all supposed to be smooth feathered, and wouldn't you know one turns out to be a frizzle!?

    Sounds like you have my kind of luck! [​IMG]

    They are real cute. Yes, the others look like little roos to me.

    Wait, your ordered 3 and hatched 2? Where is the other one? Anyway, looks like two roos and two hens in the pic but it is hard to tell.

    lol the other one didn't make it into the picture. I do have a couple pics of the 3 from Ideal together, but photobucket was acting up on me and I didn't get them loaded yet. Working on it, though [​IMG]

    Ok here are a few more pictures.

    I didn't get all three chickies in, but the one on the right is the one missing from all the first pics.
